The mission of BigPumpkins.com is to provide an interactive web site to the giant pumpkin
growing community! We would also like to promote the exciting sport/hobby of giant pumpkin
and giant squash growing by helping new comers get started.
We are at it again and going for broke this fall. We are trying to raise the $10,000 to have a Guinness official on hand we are at 2,500 now.
We will be putting in the Taunton River up in Dighton MA on Sept 3rd and going to Battleship Cove in Fall River, a 8 miles run. We are now at $7,000
and pushing for corporate sponsors and private as well.
We have also co-hosted the Marshfield Fair weigh-off. We have added $200 to 1st & 2nd if the pumpkin is over 800lbs. The top two pumpkins will be used
in our world record run. This puts 1st prize at $700 and second $600. And $500.00 bonus plus our $200 if winning pumpkin exceeds the weight of the 2010
record of 1105 lbs. People planning to bring pumpkins are asked to give me a heads up so I can let the fair grounds how many are attending.
